A serious accident can completely upend your life, often in ways you did not foresee. Faced with the trauma of the accident and working to regain your health, you may not consider all of the financial impact the accident has on your life. The Tuscaloosa accident attorneys at Cross & Smith handle personal injury cases throughout Alabama. You may be experiencing severe pain and suffering, both now and into the future, and the emotional toll of the accident may be with you forever. Your injuries do not only impact you, but those around you, who may now have to care for you, cover financial expenses, and take on additional chores, errands, and other work around the house.
Personal injury cases are among the most common forms of lawsuits in America. But for you, this is likely your only personal injury case, or one of few in your life. You probably have little idea of how to go about obtaining compensation for your injuries, whether a court case actually needs to be filed, how long the process might take, how to deal with mounting medical bills in the meantime, and a host of other questions. Not only has your life been altered by your accident, but now you must find your way through a complex legal system.
America’s civil justice system allows only money as a compensation for your injuries. While no amount of money can make you whole again, it is the best that the legal system has to offer, and money can provide tremendous assistance as you work to regain your health. One piece of good news in your personal injury case is that there is often insurance that covers the defendant’s negligent conduct and that will pay some portion – or all – of the money you are due. But in other cases, the amount of insurance money available may be very small compared to your injuries, and full compensation for your losses may be difficult to obtain.
In any personal injury case, it is important to have an experienced counselor and advocate on your side. At Cross & Smith, we understand that after a severe accident, having a competent accident attorney should not be one of your many worries. Our team has handled hundreds of personal injury and accident cases and successfully obtained verdicts and settlements of $1 million or more, and give every case our personal attention. We are aggressive, ethical and hard-working, and we will do everything we can to help you on your road to recovery.
You likely have questions about the process. You may have heard stories from friends and others, and have misconceptions about the value of your case, your prospects for obtaining a settlement, whether you really need a lawyer, and all the options that you have. No two cases are the same. Please feel free to contact an experienced Tuscaloosa accident attorney at Cross & Smith. Call our office today at (877) 791-0618 for a free confidential consultation.

"We realize there are many options for representation out there, and we talked with several of the "big names" before finding Cross and Smith. With the others, it felt like we were being bullied, in a tank with hungry sharks. We are still receiving junk mail from some. We are SO thankful we were referred to Justin Smith (Cross and Smith) for our accident claim. He and his team were absolutely amazing."
